PVinsights: Japanese and European buyers still paid the extra money for Mono PERC cells amid information inefficiency

Alternative Energy - Thu, 12/07/2017 - 08:50
Polysilicon prices in China rose slightly this week, but prices remained under pressure on signs of slower downstream demand in China. Chinese polysilicon suppliers continued to raise price quotes given supply tightness, but actual settling prices only increased limitedly from previous level as suppliers took waning downstream prices into consideration. In addition, the current demand strength of polysilicon in China were mostly supported by the major mono-crystalline wafer makers in the stage of aggressive capacity expansion and ingot inventory building for the potential demand recovery to mono-crystalline products while the current high polysilicon prices also limit the multi-crystalline wafer rivals' ability from lowering prices at larger scope. Nevertheless, for majority of the wafer buyers, polysilicon prices are now above the market's affordability and more Chinese buyers may struggle to continue their pace of procurement growth. In overseas, polysilicon prices remained steady, without any meaningful transaction. Although Wacker has yet to recover its production after the explosion accident, the supply in overseas market did not witness any signs of shortage.
